This series is just getting more and more interesting 🙂 For Ecclesiastes I came across:
Levine, Étan. “The Humor in Qohelet.” Zeitschrift für die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft 109, no. 1 (January 1997): 71-83.
As well as all its other strengths Levine begins with a nice catalogue of the stupid scholars who have pompously declaimed the absence of humour from Scripture. No, not raging Fundy Americans, but proper dignified European scholars, I enjoyed reading some of their wise words at the start of this podcast. In fact for humour in Ecclesiastes I’ll basically just read a short extract of Qohelet’s words (Ecclesiastes 10:5-15) and almost let them speak for themselves.
For Qohelet it is the absence of sense that raises a laugh.
Here’s the link to the audio: Humour in the Bible: book 21: Ecclesiastes
PS: for more explanation hear: Humour in the Bible: 21B: Ecclesiastes (again)
